You may or may not be aware that this Friday a couple are getting married. This may not qualify as front page worthy, unless of course it was the future King of England getting married, which it is. We have tried to avoid the Royal Wedding and bury our heads in the sand, but the fever has finally hit Push PR HQ. What better way to kick off the wedding season than with a right royal knees up. We all know (whether married or not) that your wedding day is meant to be the best day of your lives, so from the venue, to the dress, shoes and accessories, everything has to be perfect.
A holding diamond, an eternity band or a Tiffanys must-have, it needs to be 100% the right ring. Jewellery boutiques like Ec One offer a Bridal service, where you can go in for an consultation. The staff take time discussing possibilities for the ring. You can request, view and choose stones and oversee the production of your engagement ring through the on-site workshop. That’s one worry sorted.
Last year was the Vogue Wedding Year. May’s issue followed two Vogue Editors quests to find their perfect wedding gowns in an article called ‘A Tale of Two Dresses’. Emma Elwick-Bates used the words ‘custom-made’, ‘lace’ and ‘Erdem’ to describe her wedding dress, which I’m sure had most brides-to-be clawing with jealously into their bridal magazines, sobbing about the off-the-rack dress they had chosen. Maybe not Miss Middleton though…
We asked Vogue’s Emma, why she went for Erdem; “It was an organic progress that I worked on with Erdem as he is a friend aswell as a wonderful designer.” I suppose if you had Erdem as a friend…why not pull those strings?! This is where Miss Middleton comes into her own, she will have designers falling over their feet to dress her. A gown that will be recognised forever more, a designer that will have instant fame for designing ‘The Dress’. If we could call Kate Middleton, we would tell her about Jasper Garvida and his fantastic bespoke bridal range. Stunning and intricate, these pieces stand the test of time and would certainly steal the show.
For those of us who are’t Fashion Editors, Super Stylists or Princesses-in-waiting, it’s great that brands offer a bespoke service for those wedding fears. Alongside Ec One, shoe website Upper Street are great for brides. You can create your own shoe from scratch, including the heel height (for those who can’t walk in skyscraper heels). Shoes are affordable but still as luxurious as you can get. Stunning shoes that are exactly what you ordered.
Then comes the Honeymoon. If you were a Princess and could travel the entire world, where on earth would you choose for you honeymoon? The couple got engaged in South Africa, so that stands as the bookies favourite. One things for sure, Kate will have her trusty Tusting Explorer holdall by her side.
Want to accessorise like a Princess? Well now you know how.
